Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic Get Well for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a color challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

The Tropical Chic Stamp Set came out for this one, along with the Timeless Tulips and Healing Hugs Stamp Sets. The color combo just said "tropical" to me. I had an order for a get well card so I thought I'd create something fairly cheerful...

My card base is Mint Macaron with a mat of Lovely Lipstick.

I brayered a mat of Whisper White with Mint Macaron, stamped the palm branch, from Tropical Chic, in Mint Macaron and ran it through my embossing machine with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I'm entering my card at the Stinkin' Inkers Challenge "Make an Impression".

Then, on a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped three of the flowers from Tropical Chic. Of course, I don't have to tell you what the colors are (smile) but I DO have to tell you the Lovely Lipstick was second generation. I cut them out with the Tropical Dies.

I took a scrap of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment from Timeless Tulips full strength with Lovely Lipstick. I then cut a banner end. 

I adhered the embossed mat to the Lovely Lipstick mat with liquid glue. Then I adhered the banner to that and adhered the Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron flowers with liquid glue and the Petal Pink flower with Dimensionals. Later I might add bling to jazz up the centers.

For the inside, I used my Rectangle Stitched Dies to create stitched mats. I adhered them to each other with liquid glue. The sentiment is from Healing Hugs.

Using the flower stamp, I stamped off once in Petal Pink before stamping on the Whisper White mat. I adhered the sentiment mats to that with Dimensionals.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Even if you don't have a question, I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
